Roskomnadzor has officially blocked the social network Facebook in Russia. The agency notes that these are “retaliatory measures to restrict access to Russian media.” It is reported that since October 2020, there have been 26 cases of discrimination against Russian media and information resources by Facebook.

Twitter was also blocked for the same reason. Previously, only access speed restrictions were imposed on it, but now the site is completely unavailable.

Before that, Microsoft and Apple announced the termination, restrictions or suspension of their services in Russia. HP, Dell, Intel and AMD stopped deliveries of equipment to the country, the Megogo movie service stopped working, and Disney, Warner Bros., Sony, Universal Pictures and Paramount suspended the distribution of Hollywood novelties in the country.
